Whether you are planning on storing your rug for a short time or long-term, prepare it for storage correctly to keep it looking the best. Never store a dirty rug, because the small particles can attract insects. Clean it thoroughly first, with a steam cleaner or at a professional rug cleaner. Make sure that your rug is 100% dry before you roll it to store. Most rugs should be rolled with the bottom on the outside. If you have a silk rug, however, roll it up with the top on the outside. Finally, you want to wrap your rug with plastic (or brown paper if your rug is wool) – this last step will keep it snugly rolled together and protect it from dust and dirt.
Is your pantry overflowing? Can’t find the food you need? Clean it out and organize your food to save money and time on cooking. Start one shelf at a time: remove all the food items, and trash anything that is stale or expired. Place everything else on your countertops or table. Wipe down each shelf with a damp cloth and natural cleaner, and let everything dry. Next, you can put your groceries back in the pantry, and organize them in a way that makes sense for your family. Clean any sticky or dusty containers before you put them back in. Now your pantry is clean and organized.
Having food stored away is a great idea, as long as it's food you use. If food is too stale to eat, it's time to throw it out. Clean one shelf at a time. Remove the contents of each shelf. Use a clear section of counter space or pull a...
Why do you need a storage inventory? There are many reasons to keep track of the items that you have in storage. With an accurate record of your belongings, you’ll save time and money. It’s hard to remember everything that you have stored. If you want to purchase something new, you can check your record to see if you already own it. You’ll also know exactly what you have in case you decide to sell some of your things. When you access your storage unit, you’ll have a list of the contents of every box, so that you don’t waste time searching and searching. And just in case, you’ll have an exact record of your things if you ever have to file an insurance claim.
Where should you donate your gently used belongings? Whether you have a small box or a large truck full of items to donate, you can find the right home with people who need them. National charity organizations like the Salvation Army and Goodwill are great places to donate a variety of items. Books in good condition can be donated to the local library, and children's hospitals often need children's books for waiting rooms and activity centers. Take women and children's clothing to local family shelters, which also usually accept towels, shoes and accessories. Many churches also run programs that distribute furniture and home goods to families that need them.
Are you moving soon or storing some of your belongings with Zippy Shell? Pack your clothes correctly so that you don't have to replace damaged items. Don't just toss your clothes into a bag or box, or they'll wind up wrinkled – and you'll find yourself ironing for days. Use suitcases to pack clothes that you'll need right away, and roll them to reduce wrinkles. For hanging clothes, invest in a wardrobe box to keep them beautiful. You can also gather them in bunches using garbage bags – keep them on their hangers and use twist-ties to secure the hanger tops.
When moving homes, check out these essential eight steps to make packing and moving your bedroom easy with details on where to start, what you’ll need and how to get it all done.
Moving day doesn’t have to be stressful. The more you are able to plan ahead, the smoother your moving experience will be. First, begin your move as early in the day as possible, because moving always takes longer than you think it will – and no one wants to move in the dark. If possible, have a friend watch your kids and/or pets. Pack up everything that you possibly can before the day arrives, but keep a few extra boxes or bags on ahead for the extra items that always seem to appear. Ready to make your move? Contact Zippy Shell of West Houston today to reserve your portable storage container.
Moving with a dog? Our furry friends can easily get overwhelmed by all the action and unfamiliarity of a move. Plan ahead to reduce your dog's stress. If possible, have friends keep your dog while you’re moving boxes in – the doors will be open, and your dog might escape. Otherwise, keep it confined to one space, like the backyard or a bedroom. Be sure to give your dog his familiar bed, toys, food and water. Once the moving is done, you can slowly introduce your dog to the rest of the house, and he can explore the new surroundings at his own pace.
Plan ahead and pack an “Open First” box when you move, so that you’ll have the things you need as soon as you arrive. When you arrive to your new home and begin to unpack, there are some items that you will need almost immediately. What goes into an “Open First” box? Cleaning supplies, paper towels, hand soap, scissors and tools are important items you’ll need. Add paper plates, cups and napkins along with plastic utensils so that you can eat without finding the dishes. You may also need pet food and pet bowls for your dog or cat. Keep your “Open First” box in a special place in your mobile container so that you know where it is, and can access it easily.
When you begin a decluttering project, you might be overwhelmed by your belongings. By its very nature, decluttering is daunting. Don’t try to sort out everything at once. Just pick one thing that you know exactly where it goes, and put it in its proper place. When that is put away, choose another item and put it away. Continue on step by step, moving from one thing to the next. By breaking down your project into smaller tasks, you make it more manageable. As items find there home, you’ll be better able to understand what you need to do next.
Whether you can't walk into a room in your house without tripping over something or you just want to do some spring cleaning, decluttering your home is a great way to feel more calm and comfortable in your space. If you want to declutter...
